    Thank you.

    I think it would be possible to have Windows detect the Zip drive after boot. DOS and Linux can. Does anyone have more ideas?

  • ethros May 30, 2010

    Everyone is assuming that I cannot detect the Zip drive on boot. THAT IS NOT TRUE! I need to detect the Zip drive AFTER BOOT, since it was not connected at the time of boot.

    Please look at the whole trail of questions and answers.

    Lets try this again...

    A Zip drive us NOTa PnP device. I need to detect it AFTER the computer has booted. In DOS I can run guest.exe to do it.

    What do I do in Windows 2000. Please do not tell me to reboot. The Zip drive will be automatically detected.

    One more piece of information that might help us both find the solution, is how do I do a sequential boot into Windows 2000? In other words, examine and see every instruction in the boot process.

    Thanks.

Hi,

You can try these options:

1. At the beginning you can switch it to zip then start your computer. when you need to print you can switch and set the printer enable from the contol panel or printer properties to be able to print without rebooting. If it doesn't work try to do followings.

2. To have the zip drive detected after boot, tell W2K to use legacy PnP mode.
Right-click My Computer
Click Properties
Select Hardware tab
Expand the Ports (COM & LPT) entry
Right-click Printer Port (LPT1) entry
Select Properties
In the Port Settings tab, select the Enable legacy Plug and Play detection option
Reboot
You may need to run the Add/Remove Hardware control panel applet.

Then try to switch from printer to zip drive. From my computer try to refresh the window, check the drive letter of the zip drive, if it is accessible or not without booting.


If it still does not work, try the following registry hack:

Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type regedt32, and then click OK.
Locate and then click the key that contains the values that you want to edit.

At the dos prompt type regedit and open registry editor
Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Key: SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Parallel\Parameters
Name: ParEnableLegacyZip
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1


Restart PC.
Then try to switch from printer to zip drive. From my computer try to refresh the window, check the drive letter of the zip drive, if it is accessible or not without booting.



Hope this helps

Waiting your comments.

For that first insert zip drive into cabinet.
Then close the screw but let it loose into cabinet.Then check.
Set both screw to loose so zip driver can be detected in computer.
Also reconnect both cable to zip drive.
Then check.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

  • For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del or ALt+F2 key to enter in bios.
    Then you can see bios screen then go to boot menu and set first boot device as your zip drive then save settings and exit.
    Let me know if you need further assistance.

  • ethros May 26, 2010

    Thank you.

    I think I did not adequately define the problem....;.
    Let me define the problem again. I boot the Windows 2000 computer without the Zip drive connected. I now connect the Zip drive. What should I do now to get Windows to recognize the Zip drive? What program should I run.

    In the same situation in DOS, I run guest.exe, and the DOS recognizes the Zip drive.

    Thanks again


  • For that go to device manager and uninstall floopy driver.
    Then if still same issue then
    First make sure cable connected to zipdrive is working fine.

    Press
    windows key +R key so you can see run then type in run "devmgmt.msc"
    then press ok so you can see device manager uninstall floopy zip drive drivers
    then it automatic install it's drivers.
    then check.
    Also you need
    to change registry for that type in run "regedit" then press ok then
    you can see registry editor then locate below key.
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11­CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
    And remove upper filter and lower filter.Then restart computer then check.


    Let me know if you need further assistance.
    Thanks for using FixYa






  • ethros May 28, 2010

    Let me define the situation again.

    What I am NOT trying to do is to detect the Zip drive on boot.

    This is the sequence:

    1] Boot computer w/o Zip drive attached.
    2] Attach Zip drive.
    3] Do something so that the computer will detect the Zip drive.

    The question to you is: "what is the something?"

    Thanks again.



  • Reconnect power cable and data cable to zip drive.
    If it is internal drive then change data cable which is connected to motherboard.
    Enter in bios and make sure zip drive or floopy drive is enable.
    Then save settings and check.
    Let me know if you need further assistance.
    Thanks for using FixYa.


  • ethros May 28, 2010

    One cannot access the BIOS w/o rebooting the computer.

    If I reboot w/ the drive connected, it will be detected. I wish to have the computer detect the Zip drive w/o a reboot.

    Thanks.

I assume you have got a parallel port ZIP drive, if so -
The parallel port Zip drive was not designed to be connected by a A/B switch to switch between the Zip drive and the printer.
The Zip drive has two 25 pin connectors, one for connecting to the computer and the other for the printer.
The Zip drive is first connected to the computer and then the printer is connected to the printer port on the Zip drive.
Make sure the printer and the Zip drive are powered up first before you boot up the computer.

  • ethros May 26, 2010

    Thank you.

    I am aware of the fact that the Zip Drive is a pass thru device, but I wish to retain my present configuration. On DOS 7.1 [the DOS underlying Windows 98], which I have on my other computer, I can run the "guest" program and it will detect the Zip drive after I boot the computer. [I also have an A/B switch there]. I would like to be able to do the same in Windows 2000.

    Thanks again

    I reasonably sure it won't work, Windows need to detect the Zip drive first.

    There may be a way around your problem.

    Install a 2nd LPT printer card in the computer, and install the printer on this card as a printer on LPT2 printer port.

    Connect the Zip drive on the original printer port (LPT1).

    Remove the A/B switch, you won't need it.

    Have fun.

Why is the boot drive letter not C: after installing Windows XP on a blank...


The Windows setup process did not assign drive letter C: to the hard drive during the Windows XP/2000/NT installation process. WHY did this happen?

During the installation of Windows XP (2000 and NT use the same process) after a BLANK hard disk drive has been installed in the system, the setup process does not AUTOMATICALLY assign drive letter C: to the HDD. This can happen because an existing hard drive partition was not detected by setup and one of the following:

1. There is a Media Card Reader in the system
2. There is a Zip Drive in the system
3. There is a USB Flash Drive connected to the system
4. There is a USB Printer connected to the system that has a media card reader
5. There is an External Hard Drive connected to the system

If, any of these devices are in the system, setup will assign drive letter C: to one of these devices and then the hard disk drive (HDD) ends up with drive letter H or such. The boot drive letter in and of itself is not a big deal. Anyone with a multi-boot system like mine at home is familiar with non-C: boot drives and they per se cause no problems (You just have to know the drive letter of your boot drive).

To prevent this from happening, boot to your Windows CD and run the setup thru the creation and formatting of the hard drive. Power the system off manually, then restart the Windows installation. The partition you created on the last install will be detected and assigned drive letter C:

Windows 2000 only supports up to the 137gb. With some registry edits it may show all. Try to google "windows 2000 hard drive size" and see what you come up with.
